Airline Lingo for Dummies

Flight Attendant Thoughts

Ever been eaves dropping on your crew and feel like they are speaking another language? Let’s be real, no one cares about anything we say but here’s some airline lingo for you anyways! 

Galley Yoga: Stretching in ones seat, the aisle or galley. Please don’t. 


Landing Lips: The process of touching up hair, makeup and lips prior to landing. 

High and Tight: Refers to the hair of a female flight attendant, aka headache hair. 


Coach Roach: Flight Attendants who prefer to work economy.

Jumpseat Therapy: We tend to get real close real fast on our jumpseats. Sometimes it becomes a therapy session. Gotta help our flying family out! Hi Boyfriend!


Senior Mama: Flight Attendant in charge. These crew members have 30 plus years and you don’t want to mess with them. So far I’ve flown with a 49 year flight attendant.  

Slam-Clicker: The antisocial Flight Attendants who don’t leave their hotel room during layovers. ME! Most the time.

Deadhead: Working flight attendant given a seat assignment in order to work a flight at the destination. This is necessary due to delays, cancelations, merges, etc. usually at an airport that is not a base. 

Domestic Diva: Flight Attendants who only fly domestic trips. Pick me! This is Denver, CO.

Now you know! Let me know what you think!
